Jill Scott wins I'm a Celebrity 2022

Jill Scott has been crowned the winner of I’m A Celebrity 2022 UK.

The former England international footballer beat out nine other celebrities to be crowned champion in the ITV reality show.

Scott, who is also a television presenter and model, said she was “absolutely shocked” to have won the show. “I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy in my life,” she said.

The 37-year-old had been one of the favourites to win the show from the start, but it was far from an easy ride for her. In the final trial, Scott had to face her fears and eat some of the world’s most disgusting foods – including live bugs – in order to earn her place in the final three.

Speaking about her experience on the show, Scott said: “It’s been absolutely amazing. It’s something that I never thought I would do in a million years.”

“I’ve made some great friends along the way and I’ve just loved every single minute,” she added.

Scott is the second footballer to win I’m A Celebrity, after former Liverpool player Ian Wright won the show in 2019.
